New Order are the latest band to launch their own beer. They have teamed up with Moorhouse’s Brewery in Burnley for Stray Dog, named after a song on the UK synth-pop legacies’ 2015 album Music Complete. The brew is described as “a refreshing and clean tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness,” and was developed by Dan Casaru after a series of tastings in the spring.
“It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they’re celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west,” the band said in a statement.
Stray Dog will be available in pubs throughout the UK starting in the fall.
